One hour + $45---
Although the View Cams are no longer supported by Sharp most I remember have a digital connection through which the video will upload to you computer. Laptop, desktop or tower? IEEE 1394/ iLink 4-pin or 6-pin? Find the appropriate connection for your computer and go. The Sharp's end should be a 4-pin connector. You computer's native one probably is 6-pin. Any consumer electronics store will have the 4-to-6-pin cable. Cable to computer then cable to turned off camcorder. Turn on camcorder. Windows Media or Toast will handle most simple home projects. No IEEE 1394 on your computer? I get a generic PCI-slot add on card (up to $20 at the same stores), install it and (already have a DVD burner?) ..go!
The alternative path costs about $80.
Take the cam with you to the store. Find a generic A/V cable( a 3-ringed 1/8-inch pin plug[to the camera with video=yellow and 2-channel-white=left and red=right]audio dangling from the other end for a converter) and buy a A>D converter(Turtle Beach, Dazzle etc) that connects via USB. These converters usually come with software to make happen what you want. Good Luck

Need adaptor for older Sony analog camcorder - CCD-TRV70 DC 6V


You need to get a Digital to Analogue converter such as the Canopus ADVC110 A/D Converter. (circa $225). There may be cheaper alternatives. (you might also be able to use a digital camcorder that has a built in Analogue to digital converter):
 Canopus 77010150100 ADVC110 Converter

The Canopus comes with a 6-pin firewire cable. Since your Dell Studio has a 4 pin Firewire (actually called iLink) you will also need a 6-pin to 4-pin cable or an adapter:
 Firewire 6-PIN To 4-PIN Cable

 Cables To Go - 27028 - Firewire 6-Pin Female 4-Pin Male Adapter

You hook your Sony up to the A/D converter with audio and video cables (usually supplied with your camcorder) and hook the converter to you Dell with a firewire cable. Then you capture the video using some video capture software. I don't know what comes with windows these days.

Converting video to playable dvd wot moi file


as stupid and simple as it sounds:
rename the file extension to %filename%.MPG and it will play with your normal video player (I use VLC player).
found this solution on some other site, was sceptical, but it really works.
